Django-mptt-admin provides a nice Django Admin interface for django-mptt models.

Screenshot

Requirements

The package is tested with Django (2.2 - 3.1), and django-mptt (0.11). Also with Python 3.6 - 3.8.

Older versions:

  • Version 1.0.x supports Django 2.0 and 2.1.
  • Version 0.7.2 supports Django 1.11 and Python 2.7.

Installation

Install the package:

$ pip install django-mptt-admin

Add django_mptt_admin to your installed apps in settings.py.

  INSTALLED_APPS = (
      ..
      'django_mptt_admin',
  )

Use the DjangoMpttAdmin class in admin.py:

    from django.contrib import admin
    from django_mptt_admin.admin import DjangoMpttAdmin
    from models import Country

    class CountryAdmin(DjangoMpttAdmin):
        pass

    admin.site.register(Country, CountryAdmin)

Options

tree_auto_open

Auto-open node. Default value is 1.

Values: * True: autopen all nodes * False: do not autoopen * integer: autopen until this level

tree_load_on_demand

Load on demand (True / False / level). Default is True.

  • True: load nodes on demand
  • False: do not load nodes on demand
  • int: load nodes on demand until this level

autoescape

Autoescape (True / False). Default is True.

Autoescape titles in tree.

filter_tree_queryset

Override the filter_tree_queryset method to filter the queyset for the tree.

class CountryAdmin(DjangoMpttAdmin):
  def filter_tree_queryset(self, queryset):
    return queryset.filter(name='abc')

use_context_menu

Capture the contextmenu event. NB: the contextmenu event is triggered when you click with the right mouse button.

  • True: Capture the contextmenu event.
  • This is useful if you want to write custom javascript to catch the tree.contextmenu event.
  • Also see https://mbraak.github.io/jqTree/#usecontextmenu and https://mbraak.github.io/jqTree/#event-tree-contextmenu
  • False (default): do not capture the contextmenu event.

item_label_field_name

Define which field of the model should be the label for tree items.

Possible values are: * string: name of the model field or model property method to use as tree items label * None (default): model unicode used ad tree item label

Example:

class MyMpttModel(MPTTModel):
    title = models.CharField(......

    @property
    def title_for_admin(self):
          return '%s %s' % (self.pk, self.title)

class MyMpttModelAdminClass(MPTTModelAdmin):
    item_label_field_name = 'title_for_admin'

Filters

If you want to use filters, then you can set the list_filter option. See the Django docs.

from django_mptt_admin.admin import DjangoMpttAdmin

class CountryAdmin(DjangoMpttAdmin):
    list_filter = ('continent',)

Also see the example project for a complete continent filter.
